Advertising Formats

Galaksion serves ads globally for a wide range of advertisers.

Their main focus is in the following formats:

  • CPM
  • CPC
  • POP
  • CPA

The company provides a wide variety of media advertising options including the following:

  • Splash screen or screen saver. This actually works by displaying a preliminary page showing an advertisement before the start page loads. The screensaver automatically changes to the start page after a very short time.
  • Pop-up. This is an ad that shows up in a separate window over the one that is already open.
  • Branding. Pages under branding advertising change according to the corporate style of the advertiser. This is very effective for creating greater brand awareness and recognition.
  • Superstitials. These differ from interstitial ad formats because they have a higher image quality. The advertising is also fully loaded before it is even displayed.
  • Slide banner. An ad that shows up in the lower corner of the viewer’s window. It can easily be closed by clicking on an “X” button.
  • Video Ads. This is basically a short video preview of the ad before the full movie or music video begins playing.  
  • Interstitial. These are ads that appear in the short duration between the time a user requests for information and the moment the information loads. Interstitials are usually invisible users until they either close or minimize the windows they are viewing.
  • Pop-under. This is an ad that pops under the window you are currently viewing.
  • Daughter window ads. These are ads appearing in a separate window and closely related to a banner you are currently viewing. The ad is actually a daughter, or extension, of the content of the main banner.
  • Sponsored ads. These are simply links hidden behind other buttons and titles.

Galaksion also provides multiple sizes of static banners, animated banners, as well as vertical and horizontal banners. They are also very willing to listen to your suggestions about any other type of ad you feel can work perfectly well with your site or the type of traffic you drive to your website.

A great thing about Galaksion is their high percentage of earnings publishers can earn from referrals. While most networks provide 5% referral earnings, Galaksion offers 7%.

Galaksion Publisher Reporting and Admin Control Panel

Galaksion Publisher Reporting and Admin Control Panel Rating: 4 out of 5

  • Control panel: Galaksion’s control panel is easy to learn and use. It is quite intuitive for even a first time user of publisher dashboards. Your account manager is always on hand to assist you on solving any confusing issue such as setting banner sizes and other necessary widgets. The administrative panel has just about everything you need to get started with Galaksion.
  • Reporting: The reporting system in Galaksion is updated very quickly and quite accurate. The company emphasizes on providing simple, understandable, and transparent reporting through its reliable systems that provides all records of your impressions, clicks, conversions, and much more.

Offer Tracking

Galaksion uses HasOffers, Zotto, and Post Affiliate Pro technologies to track offers.   

Galaksion Payment  

Galaksion payment rating: 3 out of 5

  • Payment Methods Available: eWallets, bank transfers, Paypal, Visa and MasterCard
  • Payment Terms: Weekly or monthly
  • Minimum Payout Threshold: $100

The major downside of Galaksion’s payment is the high minimum payout threshold of $100, while many other networks have a low minimum threshold of $20 or $50. For a serious publisher though, this shouldn’t be an issue at all.

Account Help

Galaksion Account Help Rating: 4 out of 5.

Galaksion provides publishers with 24/7 support via email and telephone. Publishers are also assigned personal account managers to assist them with any question or issue they may have. The support system is always active and responds to publisher queries within a very short time. The only downside is the lack of a comprehensive knowledge base where publishers can find quick answers to some of the commonly asked questions.

Conclusion

Galaksion is a new network that is working consistently harder every day to ensure advertisers get the worth of their ad-spend and publishers earn income from their promotion efforts. The network is international but works well for American, Canadian, CIS, Russian, European, UK, Indian, and Latin American markets. It is easy to join as a publisher and they have a very active support system. The only downside you’ll have to live with is the lack of PayPal payment method and the high minimum payout threshold of $100. Otherwise, this is a great network to monetize your website traffic with.
